My mother lent her dress to a friend during the war. We have looked at the dress a lot of times but it wasn`t until it came into my possession and my daughter looked at it, she realised the train is on back to front !!!

Suffolk must have had good air as the long standing marriages I can think of in my family took place in Suffolk. Also many did live to a good age and some had children into their late 40s.
